I really think this could be the big one, the economy looks in a bad way and if Gordon's PFI fiddles finally have to be reported on the UK balance sheet due to changes in International Accounting Standards then the truth about "Prudence" will come out.
I said in 1992 that that was the election that the Conservative party didn't think it would win and secretly hoped it wouldn't as the ERM disaster beckoned. This time it might be best, if Gordon does call an election, for the Conservatives not to win it. A Conservative election victory followed by the economy collapsing would be blamed by the MSM on the incoming Conservative Government, unless the incoming administration really go to town over the fiddles they have discovered in the Treasury files and there will be a lot to discover. Maybe it would be better for the country for Labour under Gordon Brown to win with a reduced majority and for him to take all of the flack when the economy dives. The recovery will be even more painful than it was in the 1980's when a Conservative Government last had to pull the UK out of a Labour economic mess but at least everyone would know who to blame - Gordon "Prudence" Brown.
So as you enjoy the warm weather this weekend, spare a thought for Gordon in Dorset. He has a lot to think about, I hope he's packed a teddy to cuddle for comfort.
